Our 2021-22 Album is NOW Available to hear and to buy!

One of the YJED highlights each year is to go into a professional recording studio, and record an album of our best and favorite music over the past season.  This IS the real thing, recording with our Featured Guest Artist in a studio with pro engineers, with the clock running.  It is both a challenging and exciting day!

 

This year, we were joined in the Transient Sound studio on June 5 by Kirk Garrison , our Spring Concert Featured Guest Artist on trumpet and flugelhorn.

​​Visit our Bandcamp.com page to hear this great album.

In 2019 we dropped the prices of our albums from $7 to FREE and individual tracks from $1 to FREE. This is so students who are considering auditioning for YJED membership have the opportunity to hear the types of charts the band plays, and the quality of the playing in a professional studio setting.

We encourage anyone who can to contribute $7 or more at the checkout (you will be prompted to "name your price") to help finish paying off the recording, mixing, and mastering bills for this album. Any funds collected in excess of the remaining bills will be used to start the fund for the 2019-20 album.
